Who doesn’t love flats? They are practical, almost always comfortable, are easier to walk in than heels and are perfect for the workplace. I always wear flats to work, mostly because I don’t really have work appropriate heels but also because I would probably be the only one wearing heels at work. And I don’t really want that. hehe. So I have put together 13 pairs that I’d love to share with everyone. I honestly don’t know which pair I like the most because I think they are all fantastic.

Which pair is your favorite? And do you prefer flats to heels in the workplace or the opposite? Please share with me!

“The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself”

I worried that I would run out of things to write about for this blog. I don’t feel like I am worldly, philosophical, fashionable, knowledgeable, etc… enough to have well-written and interesting things to write about. I have been having trouble coming up with topics to write about on the blog. I search around on other blogs to see what and how they write to get ideas but sometimes it just doesn’t help.

Specifically, I would love to do outfit of the day posts but I am too awkward to go and have someone take pictures of me in my outfits. There are plenty of beautiful places in Tallahassee that would make perfect backdrops. But I don’t want to inconvenience anyone by having them play the role of my blog photog. I am a decently outgoing person but there are just some shells I have trouble breaking through.

I would also love to do Tutorial Tuesdays every week but I feel like I am not creative enough to come up with my own cool ideas for them. Or I just don’t have the time and money to go out and buy stuff so I can make it, especially if it is just to have something to post on the blog. I loved posting the maxi skirt tutorial, though. I had fun and I was able to get an amazing new skirt out of the process. I also was making the skirt because I wanted to, not just so I would have something to post.

I want this blog to be a lifestyles blog and one that people can look up to an admire, but I fear that it never will be, not because I don’t know how to outreach but because I don’t have good enough content.

I fear that I don’t have enough opinions. And I don’t just mean opinions so I can write, but in every day life, and I am not confident enough to A. voice them or B. be decisive about them. I have opinions on things, who doesn’t, but I feel like I have trouble forming opinions of my own sometimes. As a said before, this goes for every day life. I sit in my classes that are based around discussion and, while I find the whole class completely enthralling and interesting, I cannot come up with anything to interject with. I don’t have anything to add because I don’t know what my opinion is. And most of the time I form my opinion based on what I hear my classmates say and only then will I be able to think “oh that’s a great point” or “no, I don’t think I agree with that.”

My hope is that as I continue to grow I will grow into these traits that I want to have. I want to be able to say that I am confident enough to form my own opinions, that I no longer feel awkward when wanting to take pictures for the blog, and everything else I said above.

Please share with me your thoughts and ideas. Or if you do or have ever felt the same way as I do and if, when, and how to overcame them. I would absolutely love and appreciate your comments.

Sunday Style…on Monday!

While I wasn’t able to get around to my usual Sunday Style post yesterday, I was able to take a few pictures of my outfit. I am on the verge of sending out my graduation announcements to friends and family and have been wanting to take a picture to put into the announcement. Especially for my family that I don’t see too often…and my dad who’s most recent picture of me is probably from the 10th grade. I think it is time he has an updated picture. Therefore, my boyfriend and I went out to FSU’s famous Westcott Fountain to shoot a few pictures.

I also wish I got a better picture of my outfit from Saturday for you all. A group of the graduating seniors in the sorority decided we wanted to get together and have an evening out. We started off with dinner and drinks (white sangria, if you must know;)) and then went out to Midtown, which is where a few of the more upscale bars are. It’s not so college-y out there. Mostly locals and grad students, so it is always a nice change of scenery when we make it out there.
